I spent the day in the photo lab at school digitizing some negatives. Most are from summer 2010, a few are from this spring, all are, in my opinion, fun. Although they may be grainy, have some spots and scratches, focus issues etc. Perhaps that is part of what gives film it’s life and unique feeling. Hit the link below the photo to see what I did this afternoon…
Industrial Composition. Flagstaff 2010. Canon AE-1.
This series of photos come from several different rolls of film that were spread out over a fair amount of time. Shot on a few cameras, namely my Canon AE-1, Canon EF, and Leica R3. These are my walk about cameras, and as such the photos taken from them contribute to my walkabout portfolios that i have been developing for several years. From my ‘Industrial Composition’ portfolio and my series of self portraits taken in mirrors, to more documentary/journalistic type portraits. I will just use the rest of this post to let the photos speak for themselves…

Not too bad for a days work. I have a few more that didn’t make it to the blog (major dust problems that need addressing). Thanks to Russ Gilbert for giving me all day access to the extra nice film scanner at school, and thanks to everyone who lets me put your image on silver and plastic. Look for more fun film stuff in the future.
I never thought of it that way, well put!
